Daifuku North America brings virtual reality to ProMat 2017
Elk Grove Village, IL - Wynright, a wholly owned subsidiary of Daifuku North America Holding Company, will be exhibiting in booth S2603 at the upcoming ProMat show from April 3-6 2017 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
The in-booth demonstrations will include several 3D virtual reality materials handling solutions as well as a virtual tour of Hini Arata Kan, Daifuku’s state-of-the-art technology showcase facility in Japan.
An interactive kiosk will showcase the company’s material handling solutions and technologies, as well as a series of product demonstrations including robotics, conveyor and sortation, Mini-Load Shuttle and other AS/RS models. The new AS/RS Shuttle solutions are designed to optimize the use of floor space and ensure accurate inventory control. It can store and optimally buffer picked orders and then release them in sequence for efficient loading into route trucks or other direct-to-dock sequencing operations. “An interactive kiosk allows us to better engage with visitors, and is ideal for this type of environment”, commented Kevin Ambrose, CEO of Wynright Corporation.
Other innovative solutions include Goods-To-Person/Robot; Put Wall Order Fulfilment configurations that are providing high productivity along with high accuracy for piece picking applications; Robotic Linear Palletizing, that offers a complete line of high-performance robotic and non-robotic automated palletizing solutions and; High Throughput Batch Picking which lasts longer, and requires less overall maintenance.
Experts from Daifuku will be conducting three educational seminars at the booth on ‘The Convergence of Warehouse Execution Systems (WES) and Automation’, ‘Extend the Life of Your Aging Material Handling Assets’, and ‘Automated Sequencing Opportunities and Solutions’. “Providing flexible solutions that meet our customers’ needs is what drives innovation at Wynright. As a leading material handling and logistics provider, we want to educate and share our knowledge with the industry. Consequently, these seminars are aimed at all levels of warehouse and managerial staff”, concluded Ambrose.
